Porcelain inlays and onlays are chosen to replace large, old posterior fillings that are breaking down and where strength and esthetics are of concern. Inlays and onlays are extremely durable protecting the teeth against further fracture. Porcelain inlays may be used on all posterior teeth due to their inherent strength and wear resistance.
The procedure requires two appointments, with an impression being taken at the first visit. Our technician then fabricates an accurately fitting restoration ensuring that there is an exact shade match to the natural teeth. The completed restoration is cemented or bonded in place at the second visit giving you a beautiful restoration that will serve you for many years to come.
